About Me

I have been working as an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist for many years, seeing clients privately and within NHS, NGO and various school settings.

As an Arts Therapist, I believe that creativity is central to the process of self-discovery, healing, change and transformation.

As well as offering ‘Talking Therapy,’ I encourage the use of the arts in sessions - especially when words are too much or not enough. Using different creative methods can help reach places that we cannot get to by talking alone. The arts can also help us explore and better understand the layers of meaning within therapy sessions. This can include working with painting, drawing, clay, sculpture, collage, small worlds, sand tray, poetry, story and myth, movement and ritual. It can also mean utilising symbolism and metaphor in our explorations together.

I also work as an Environmental Arts Therapist (training 2014), which stems from my belief in the inherent wisdom of nature to heal and restore, and an interest in how the cycles and themes within the natural world relate to the human psyche.

My work as a therapist is largely informed by over 11 years’ experience teaching yoga, with a focus upon body and breath, and the relationship between mental, emotional and physical states.

As an Integrative Arts Psychotherapist, my theoretical approach combines the Western Psychotherapeutic thinking of Psychodynamic and Humanistic schools, including Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and in particular Gestalt Therapy. My understanding of the human condition is further influenced by the philosophy and psychology of Eastern Traditions (particularly Indian and Tibetan).

A belief in the interconnected relationship between individuals and their wider environment - both past and present - is intrinsic to my thinking and work as a therapist.

I offer both short-term and long-term therapy, depending on individual needs.

I currently provide online therapy and clinical supervision, with several years of experience working in this way. Whilst my usual practice is based at The Woodland Retreat, Highgate (an eco-cabin set within ancient protected woodland) and at my home practice in Crouch End, I am working online only in 2023.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I take a creative and embodied approach to my work as a clinical supervisor. Having provided informal supervision throughout the past decade, I formally trained to become a supervisor in 2019/20 with Anna Chesner, co-director of the London Centre for Psychodrama. I believe that good supervision has the potential to nurture and energise not only our clinical work but also ourselves as therapists.
